Minimum Wage Increase Disqualified From Stimulus Plan

Democrats' bid to push through a $15 minimum wage with Biden's $1.9 trillion stimulus package was denied. 

On the show today, Todd discussed an article written by The New York Times that lamented how the Senate's parliamentarian said the minimum wage increase could not be included in the bill because it did not meet the strict requirements.

Budget reconciliation was not designed to be something that allowed the Senate to circumvent their own rules to pass things that should be put into other legislation. So it's refreshing to report that this is a victory for the rule of law.
